We license ProcessIt Workflow three ways: by workflow, as single instances with unlimited workflows, and as enterprise solutions.
A workflow is a business process that's been automated. Expenses reporting, for example, could be a workflow. Capital appropriations requests could be another. New hire applications might be yet another. Each of these is considered a workflow. Regardless of how many people are using it or how many times it's used.
An instance is really a technical term. It's a database. For those with technical familiarity of the Domino platform, it's a ReplicaID. So, you can have a single instance with just one workflow. Or...
A single instance of ProcessIt can house an unlimited number of workflows. (There are downsides to putting too many workflows in a single instance, though.)
Finally, an enterprise license allows for unlimited deployment of workflows AND instances across the licensee's servers.
So, what's the right model for you? It mostly depends on how many business processes you wish to manage/automate.
If all you need is to automate one process, then a single workflow license is right for you. What if you want to automate two or three? No problem. You can add additional workflows a la carte to your instance.
Single Instance, Unlimited Workflows:
What if I want to use ProcessIt to automate more than a few processes? Well, most organizations don't stop at a few when there are so many processes that can be accelarated and so much paper to eliminate. So we have an unlimited workflow instance license. Again, there are some downsides to putting too many workflows in a single instance. This is a replica ID that can be replicated across as many servers as you have. It is also web- AND mobile-device-ready. This license is also for unlimited users at no additional charge. Want more details? Drop us a line.
Unlimited Workflows & Instances:
For the ultimate in flexibility, Enterprise licensing offers organizations unlimited use of ProcessIt across their organization. This means as many workflows in as many instances across a licensee's entire domain.
Small Business Package:
We also offer a Small Business Workflow Package for those smaller organizations with limited needs and development resources. If you're a small business and you want to learn more about this, give us a call.
